I was reading the drawer thread and saw this link: http://www.businessinsider.com/22-maps-that-show-the-deepest-linguistic-conflicts-in-america-2013-6?op=1
And noticed that I did not have the same answer as my area (section of state, whole state, midwest lol) for a good number of them. I’m guessing this has to do with a few things: I lived in New Jersey for the first 4 years of my life, my mom grew up in CA, and I’ve lived overseas for 7 years.
I have had people I grew up with say that I don’t sound like I came from there (like I sound similar, but different). So how about you guys? What were your answers for the 22 maps and did they correspond to your area?
For reference (in case anyone is curious), I lived in NW Indiana for 12 years (age 4-16), so that’s where I’m considering my “home” area with this.
This is what I got for the questions corresponding to those maps… (not sure why it pasted in so big!)
I say been … “as in ‘sit'”
As in “bo”
No to slaw
Sneakers OR tennis shoes
“The City” is contextual and I would think has to do with where you are, so
if I was still in IN, I’d say Chicago.
I have never heard of such a thing
All 3 are the same
